Media Player Classic


The requirements for Media Player Classic – Home Cinema (MPC-HC) are quite modest, making it a great choice for older or less powerful computers. Here’s a breakdown:

Operating System:

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 (32-bit only)
  • Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 11 (32-bit and 64-bit)


  • 1 GHz processor (dual-core recommended for high-definition video)
  • 512 MB RAM (1 GB RAM recommended)
  • 20 MB of free disk space
  • DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card

Additional Notes:

  • MPC-HC does not require any additional codecs to play most common video and audio formats.
  • However, if you want to play more obscure formats, you may need to install additional codecs.
  • MPC-HC is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Choose the version that matches your operating system.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
